If you are in the Houston area this weekend please join me for a free all-day seminar on genetic genealogy at Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research. These sessions will cover basic genetics for beginners and an introduction to analyzing your DNA test results. A detailed handout includes instructions that go beyond the steps we'll have time to cover in the seminar.
Registration will begin in the Carriage House shortly after the library opens at 10:00 a.m. The sessions include:
- 10:30-12:00 GATA GACC! DNA and Genetic Genealogy Today—Learn where we are today using DNA for genealogy. Maximize Y-DNA, mitochondrial DNA, and autosomal DNA test results to contribute to genealogical research goals.
- break for lunch on your own
- 1:30-2:15 Going Nuclear: DNA Discoveries to Trace All Lines of Descent—Learn to link families using autosomal DNA test results from any testing company. Maximize impact on your genealogical research goals. Includes how to use test results such as those from 23andMe, Family Tree DNA, and AncestryDNA.
- 2:30-3:15 Paternal Lines: Using Y-DNA—Learn details of Y-DNA testing including how to analyze test results. Findings can corroborate your paper trail or place you on the right research path.
- 3:30-4:15 Maternal Lines: Using Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA)—Understand mitochondrial DNA testing with an introduction to analysis of test results. Sample research problems demonstrate how mtDNA can be used by genealogists.
